The Orthopedic Residency program at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas is a five-year program taking three PGY-1 residents per year. The program was re-established in 2015.
Almost a century ago, Baylor Dallas began training orthopedic surgeons, graduating its first orthopedic resident in 1921. Baylor Dallas is also credited for training the first female orthopedic surgeon in the United States, Ruth Jackson. To meet the growing need for orthopedic surgeons at Baylor Dallas, the community and the nation, Baylor Dallas has committed to the re-establishment of an orthopedic residency program.
Orthopedic residents at Baylor University Medical Center will have the opportunity to study in a large, high-volume urban tertiary hospital with a Level I trauma designation. A unique opportunity our residents have is quality one-on-one time with the attendings.
In 2013, more than 5,400 orthopedic surgeries were performed, including approximately 2,000 hip and knee replacements and 400 shoulder replacements. An additional 1,500 acute and reconstructive cases annually are performed by four fellowship-trained orthopedic trauma surgeons on the medical staff.
